“Local Beach nearest hotel”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Lovely clean beach, you can explore rock pools, life guard station situated on beach. Unfortuately work is still being carried out on the road side of the beach, but it was only May so it may be finished before high season.

“Peaceful and sandy”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We have stayed in apartments overlooking Porth Beach for the past two years. We could gaze over the beach for hours. The tide goes out far which allows all sorts of goings on. We watched a family enjoy beach volleyball and many football games. Lovely to stroll on early in the morning.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Cornwall is generally beautiful and this beach is lovely.
Had a great day . The water was cold considering the April weather but a lovely place to capture some good photos.
